Hello!  We are the Brush & Beak Arts Studio in Somerset NJ!  Our purpose is to promote arts education and to be a hub of creativity for the Central Jersey community. We feel that art education is not given enough importance in today’s world, though it is a critical part of a child’s educational experience and is a vital part of their development. 

At Brush & Beak, we wish to provide art education services through an affordable means, which separates us from the vast majority of private art schools out there that charge an arm and a leg.  Our methodology consists of giving students maximum educational exposure to real artists, their work and technique, and the skills we can acquire to make art as they do in a condensed period of time.  Thus, the experience is a combination of an art history lesson and application through art making, resulting in the completing of an original work of art.  

We would love to hear from you, so please feel free to contact us at brushandbeak@gmail.com.

The main instructor at Brush & Beak is Khadija Daya.  Khadija is a graduate of Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.  She has a Bachelors of Fine Arts, and has been active in the arts her whole life.  Khadija has been the lead art teacher at a local private school for three years, and she is the co-founder of Bulbul Clothing, an apparel company that she has been running since 2010.
